TIRED: drained of strength and energy; fatigued often to the point of exhaustion; obviously worn by hard use; run-down
Not your average mother-of-two tired.
Not the more extreme kid-up-all-night tired.
Not even the can’t-take-another-step tired that comes at the end of a long trail.
This tired is different.
It’s a ten-hour-field-trip-with-fifty-kindergarteners tired.
I’ve never felt anything like it.
I hope to never feel it again.
